    After edging out Rockefeller 51% to 49% in the winner-take-all race in California, Goldwater had a huge majority of delegates, enough to easily win the nomination at the Republican convention. George Romney set about denouncing Goldwater, and even raised a stink at the convention to have Goldwater′s delegates disqualified. Romney was accusing many of Goldwater′s delegates as being everything from racists, members of the Ku-Klux-Klan, the John Birch Society and even accused some of being Communists! Imagine that! Once Goldwater was named the presidential nominee, George Romney still worked to undermine his campaign, refusing to endorse or support him. So...
  • Not So Fast: New Texas Poll Puts Gingrich in Striking Distance (PPP Romney 45- NEWT 35)

    Newt Gingrich has been inching towards the door over the last couple of days, admitting that tonight’s Delaware primary is likely a make-or-break situation for his campaign. However, a new poll out today might give the former Speaker some pause. Public Policy Polling shows that Mitt Romney leads in the state of Texas by a 45% to 35% margin, putting Gingrich within striking distance. Coming up lame in his home state, only 14% of GOP supporters support Ron Paul. More encouraging for Gingrich, or troubling for Romney, is that the presumptive nominee is trailing the former Speaker 45% to 40%...
  • Gingrich daughter: Campaign to 'reassess' standing

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Newt Gingrich's daughter says the former House speaker will "reassess" his campaign after the votes are tallied in Delaware, potentially setting the stage for his exit from the Republican presidential race. Jackie Gingrich Cushman said Tuesday that her father's campaign has slimmed down but is still winning over voters who aren't yet sold on Mitt Romney, who has effectively clinched the GOP presidential nomination. Despite trailing Romney in convention delegates and fundraising, Gingrich has vowed to campaign until the party's late-summer convention in Florida. Gingrich is carrying more than $4.3 million in debt and has been spending...

    Ready for the greatest political comeback of all time?  According to the Newt Gingrich campaign, that’s what they hope to start tomorrow in Delaware by surprising Mitt Romney in tomorrow’s winner-take-all closed primary: The campaign told NBC that Tuesday would be a “big day” and that Gingrich was “just waiting to see” what the outcome of the primary would be.  He told a Wilmington audience last week that a win in Delaware would “break up the media narrative” that has formed from Gingrich’s inability to win a state in over six weeks.  Can Gingrich make this his “game changer” and...

    Newt Gingrich has got a new hope: the tiny but dangerous state of Delaware. With Mitt Romney and the national press corps now focused on the general election, Gingrich is hoping to become the Christine O’Donnell of the 2012 race — rallying the state’s conservatives to pull off an upset victory over the more moderate candidate who never saw it coming. While Romney has ignored it, Gingrich has spent most of his time recently in Delaware, a state with only 17 delegates that will be awarded on a winner-take-all basis in Tuesday night’s primary races, which also include Pennsylvania, Connecticut,...

    I have to work today and tomorrow so I can't man any of Newt's phone banks, but if anybody can use this letter to forward in e-mails to your lists before tomorrow's primaries, please do so: Mitt Romney supports government-coerced abortion. He personally has made the decision to force people to provide abortions even though they believe it to be murder. Yes, he vetoed Romneycare because it mandated abortion insurance coverage, but in Dec 2005 after his veto was overridden and the Boston Globe printed an article noting that Catholic hospitals would be exempt from providing abortions to rape victims,...

  • Press Release - Massachusetts Gun Owner: "Voting for Romney Was the Biggest Mistake of My Life"

    Verona, PA - While Mitt Romney tries to tell heartland voters that he's one of them; his record speaks of a northeast liberal governor who tried to trample on Second Amendment rights. As Governor, Mitt Romney Targeted Gun Owners For Higher Taxes In 2003, Then-Gov. Romney Increased Payments From Gun Owners To The State, Calling It A Fee Instead Of A Tax. "If you own a gun or a boat, kill termites or teach horseback riding for a living or just want to learn to drive, you may have to pay more for a state permit." (John J. Monahan, "Romney...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 23, 2012 | Byron York
    On Tuesday night, as he celebrates expected victories in Pennsylvania, New York, and other states, Mitt Romney plans to accept the title of presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Certainly the overwhelming majority of party insiders, along with the rest of the political world, already views Romney as the GOP choice; Tuesday will be just more confirmation. So given those circumstances, why are some prominent Republicans in Delaware, which also votes Tuesday, throwing their support, at this late date, to Newt Gingrich? In recent days Gingrich has announced the endorsements of Terry Spence, a former Speaker of the Delaware House; Jerry...
  • Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney: Comparing Conservative ‘Products of Work’

    It is terrible that conservatives are out there distorting the records of each candidate. Or worse passing along wrong information without checking facts. All of them have qualifications and disqualifications. But can we get away from what they say they will do and compare what they actually did when they were afforded governing power? I was talking to a nationally published conservative author and speaker today who had absolutely no clue that Newt Gingrich gave the “keynote” rebuttal AGAINST Al Gore on Cap and Trade legislation. This is a travesty not just of conservative media, but those we surround ourselves...

    April 22, 2012 Environmentally Sound Energy Independence Sarah Palin On this holiest of days for EcoLiberals, how about if Americans celebrate Earth Day with responsible energy development that leads to greater independence and conservation? There’s no better way for President Obama and his administration to celebrate Earth Day than to embrace a real, environmentally sound commitment to energy independence instead of relying on foreign countries that lack environmental safeguards. One aspect of the “all-of-the-above” approach I have been discussing for years involves, of course, the necessity to “drill, baby, drill.” It’s no secret that throughout America, including the very wealthy...

    The Republican Party establishment has withstood the tea-party revolution. The tricorne-hat wearing, Gadsden-flag waving insurgents were nowhere near the Republican National Committee’s annual meeting of state chairman, which wrapped up at a posh resort here Saturday afternoon. Instead, veteran party leaders — who wore business suits even in the 100-degree heat — reigned supreme. The 2012 meeting of the Republican national command shows just how little has actually changed in the Grand Old Party since the tea-party movement helped Republicans capture the U.S. House majority two years ago and announced that they were a powerful force in American politics. While...

    Despite running on fumes, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign continues rolling out the endorsements — in Delaware. The Gingrich camp announced in an email blast Friday that Terry Spence, former Speaker of the Delaware House, is supporting the Georgia Republican's presidential bid. "Under Newt's leadership with the Contract With America, he led a team that balanced the budget, paid off the national debt, and reformed our welfare system," Mr. Spence said in the release. "We desperately need Newt's knowledge, experience, and bold leadership skills to get America back on the right track. While other candidates have ignored Delaware,...

    In the lastest Rasmussen tracking poll, which has had no media coverage, Newt Gingrich is trailing Barack Obama by only 7 points nationally. Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney by only 5 points in Florida. These poll results are being withheld by the RNC and the MSM, who want no positive news about Newt in circulation, especially the fact he is only behind Obama by 7 points nationally. The RNC establishment’s current strategy remains: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then...

Well accuracy, dear friend and conservative voter, is the enemy of lies. I want a...

    With the state's Republican primary looming next week, GOP leaders gathered in Midtown for their annual dinner Thursday night as all thoughts turned to presidential politics. NY1's Bobby Cuza filed the following report. Newt Gingrich isn’t giving in, at least not until Mitt Romney has the required 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination. “Mitt’s not yet at 1144 [delegates]. And as you know, this is a big sports town. And you have no obligation to quit until the game’s over," Gingrich said. Gingrich spoke to NY1 Thursday during a two-day swing through New York ahead of next...

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Saturday that his cash-strapped campaign machine will march forward into North Carolina next week -- despite reports that stops in that state and elsewhere had been placed on indefinite hold, according to a report by Fox News. Filed federal reports indicated that the Gingrich campaign had $4.3 million in debt and has $1.22 million cash on hand. The campaign raised $1.6 million in March but spent $2.01 million, Fox News reported. Other public records revealed that Gingrich started the month of March with $1.55 million in debt and only $1.54 million in cash reserves....
